The goals for the Apollo Initiative are: to raise funds in support of youth mental health in British Columbia, under the auspices of the Canadian Mental Health Association, BC Division (CMHA); to support the mental wellness of our youth, many of whom look to their participation in music as an important tool in their mental wellness strategy; to provide a musical goal and to keep the students motivated in this unusual season; and to facilitate social connection for our youth, especially in this challenging time of social distancing.
